Marvel Comics unveils Daredevil: End of Days.

July 10th, 2012 by Jay Comments

Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack will write the miniseries alongside artists Bill Sienkiewicz and Klaus Janson, reports Comic Book Resources.

The title is set in an alternate near-future, in which the death of Matt Murdock is seen through the eyes of Daily Bugle reporter Ben Urich in a final story before his retirement.

“It takes place in the not-so-distant future,” said Bendis. “We get a glimpse of what the Marvel Universe could look like if everything goes to hell.

“Very specifically, how the world of Daredevil has changed… including Daredevil’s very public murder.”

Bendis made his name at Marvel Comics on his extended run on Daredevil, on which he collaborated with long-time friend Mack.

Sienkiewicz is possibly best known for his work with Frank Miller on Daredevil spinoff Elektra: Assassin.

Janson illustrated an extended run on Daredevil alongside Miller.

“This story is the real end story of Daredevil,” said Janson. “I’m taking this as the last Daredevil story. I’m approaching that way and I’m putting everything I can into it.”

“If you want to see Elektra violent soccer mum, this is the book,” added Bendis.

Daredevil: End of Days #1 will debut in October.

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
